But internet security for Google chrome is of utmost importance and Google and done a good job in this field as well.
Not all content on internet is safe and suitable for kids to watch, everyone would agree. It is of utmost importance for us to keep our kids away from such content.
There is a cool Google Chrome security feature that can help us do that. Chrome allows us to create a separate profile that can be controlled and monitored. Though this feature can be used to create a profile for anyone working under you but one of the best exploit of this feature is to keep a watch on your kids.
